Serving Southern Jefferson County in the Great State of Montana

Between the Stacks: 8/16/2023

The Library was filled with the sound of young chefs as the 6th-grade orientation class visited on Monday and Tuesday to learn how to make their own nutritious lunches. Thanks to the Friends of the Library, students were able to make a variety of dishes for lunches including ham/turkey wraps, chicken & fruit salad, trail mix, and apple snacks.

Rockhounding will meet on August 21 at 5:30 PM. This is a great time of year to get out and explore the wonders of the Treasure State. If you are interested in geology, fossils, or rock identification, this is the group for you.

Karen Goff is coming in September starting on the 6th at 6 PM to present a series of classes entitled "Master Your Cash." The programs will include:

1. What is money, understanding cash flow, and the effects of compound interest (good and bad).

2. Debt & Borrowing including understanding credit.

3. Understanding taxes, inflation, and qualified plans.

4. Borrow Smart – Home wealth and strategies to leverage debt.

All classes are free and open to the public.

Also, in the vein of adult programming, Roger Richmond of Richmond Appraisal Service is doing a four-week antique appraisal for anyone who would like to discover what their treasures are worth. He will be in the Library from 5 PM. to 7 PM on Tuesday, September 5th 12th, 19th, and 26th. Patrons are asked to sign up for a slot and limit their appraisal items to two objects. There is no cost, but Roger is doing this as a fundraiser for the Friends of the Library and asks that those receiving his services make a donation to the Friends. To save your time slot, please call the Library at 287-3763. Slots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

September calendars are out and available at the front desk. They are packed with children's programming, story times, book clubs, and more. If you have any questions just give us a call at 287-3763.

If you have any plastic grocery bags you would like to get rid of, the book sale is going full blast as tourists are stopping in every day to check it out. The staff has brought almost every bag they have and would love to have donations to help people get their purchases home.
